+Unlike the :func:`sorted` function, it does not make sense for the :func:`bisect`
+functions to have *key* or *reversed* arguments because that would lead to an
+inefficent design (successive calls to bisect functions would not "remember"
+all of the previous key lookups).
+Instead, it is better to search a list of precomputed keys to find the index
+of the record in question::
+ >>> data = [('red', 5), ('blue', 1), ('yellow', 8), ('black', 0)]
+ >>> data.sort(key=lambda r: r) # precomputed list of keys
+ >>> keys = [r for r in data]
+ >>> data[bisect_left(keys, 0)]
+ >>> data[bisect_left(keys, 1)]
+ >>> data[bisect_left(keys, 5)]
+ >>> data[bisect_left(keys, 8)]
